Donald Trump is actually a viable candidate to become the president of the United States of America, but just in case he doesn’t, Bob Saget and the rest of the Fuller House cast are there to catch him when he falls.
In a hilarious installment of The Tonight Show this week, Jimmy Fallon dusted off his Trump wig and came together with the Fuller House gang to send a message of self-confidence, love and making America great again.
The skit opens with Fallon as Trump awakening from a night terror and screaming for his dad in a very Trumpish manner. Enter Bob Saget — aka Danny Tanner, the most beloved TV dad ever — much to the audience’s pleasure.
“Donald! What’s wrong, honey?” asks Danny, to which Trump answers, “I’m just sad.”
Cue the infamous Full House dramatic orchestral arrangement here.
“Look, I know I won in New Hampshire, my numbers were huge, but I’m afraid if I don’t win the nomination, everyone will say I’m a loser,” The Donald says.
“Donald, I know winning is very important to you, but sometimes, it’s OK to lose. Right, guys?” answers Danny, as Uncle Jesse (John Stamos) and Uncle Joey (Dave Coulier) enter the room to give a pep talk about believing in yourself even through failure, followed closely by the entrance of D.J. Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure), Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin), Aunt Becky (Lori Loughlin) and Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber).
The rest of the skit is filled with properly placed Full House catch phrases and Trumpisms.
After Trump comes up with the idea to erect a wall around the Tanner house to keep the pesky Gibbler away, the cast jumps on the opportunity to make a statement about the real Trump’s stance on immigration.
“Yeah, Donald, just because Kimmy isn’t technically part of the family, doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t treat her like one,” says D.J.
“Yeah, you know, even if she did once pierce my ears with an infected needle, we love her,” interjects Stephanie as the trio melts into a heartwarming embrace.
“You see, Donald, that’s just it,” adds Uncle Jesse. “If you really want to make America great again, you have to bring people together, not push them apart. We may have our disagreements from time to time, but at the end of the day, we all love each other. That’s what family is about and, gosh darn it, that’s what America is about.”
Besides the amazing Trump impersonation by Fallon, the bashing of Trump’s outlandish thoughts on immigration and the emergence of the Full House cast all together on the small screen for the first time in eons, the skit is also hilarious because of the implication that Trump is, in fact, afraid of losing, which is the underlying factor behind his braggadocio.
